UK Conservative Party agree leadership election rules to reduce numbers: Sky

June 4, 2019

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s governing Conservative Party agreed its rules for a new leadership contest to replace Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday, Sky News reported, including measures to eliminate candidates more quickly from a crowded race.

May is due to resign as leader of the Conservatives on Friday, but will remain prime minister until a successor is appointed – a process which the party has said should be completed by the end of July.
